Noises from the attic.

A story I submitted to 81words.net:

“Honey, wake up, I hear something.”
My wife shook me out of my sleep and directed my attention to the noises coming from the ceiling above our bedroom.
“How many times do I have to tell you?” I said sleepily, “It’s only squirrels.”
“Squirrels.” She repeated.
“Squirrels,” I said. “Now let’s get some sleep.”
The noises above the ceiling gradually subsided to silence.
We were nearly asleep again when we were jarred awake by a loud belch coming from the attic.
